Heating but doesn't dry clothes

I just moved into an apartment and have found that my clothes do not get dry. There was no problem while we live in a house so , can think of what may be the problem. The dryer heat and the clothes are warm just not dry. should I have the complex check the dryer vent? Coulds it be the thermostat? I just know I use alot of $$ on electric bill and still don't have dry clothes.
Thank you for any help you can provide.

Yes, that would be a venting issue.

Make sure that the filter and filter compartment are clear/clean, and then locate where the pipe exits the wall. They usually clog right at the vent exit, especially when they have the mesh covering and not a louver.

It is possible that the pipe itself is clogged as well.

This not only prevents proper drying, but is a fire hazzard and can cause problems with the dryer.

It "should" be a problem that the apartment maintenance crew will take care of free of charge.

I am not sure of the dispenser trays but if the clothes are taking to long to dry and are still damp, check the vent hose and the duct work going out the apartment for lint buildup.

Dryer will not Dry!


A conventional dryer uses 240 volts to heat air, which passes through the tumbling laundry, picking up moisture, which is then vented to the building's exterior.
Your dryer uses 120 volts to warm air, which picks up moisture from the tumbling clothes, which then passes through a vent pipe in the back right corner of the dryer where a cold water spray causes the moisture to condense, run to the drain, and then is pumped out of the washer/dryer combo. There is no exterior vent to the outside of the building. Drying with your dryer will take at least twice as long as with a standard dryer. You can wash large loads, but can only dry small loads, and the clothes will not be as dry when dryer is finished as they will be with a standard dryer.
All that said, to make sure your dryer is performing as well as it can, you might like to take the back cover off and check the elbow at the very left bottom corner (when viewed from behind) to make sure nothing is obstructing the flow of water under the tub to the drain.

How do you get the dryer to actually work?


That button with the 1/2 on it and then the time dial works and it sounds as if it is washing your clothes, but it is actually drying the clothes but heats up water in order to do it. It is kind of insane actually but it does work and that is the way to do it.

 

 

 

Do you know if there is a place to clean a lint filter? Is there a lint filter somewhere?

Washes clothes fine, drying cycle no heat


Hi, I have a Hotpoint WD640 myself and funnily enough I have the same problem. Knowing a tiny bit about washing machines you will probably find that your heating element from the dryer has stopped working. If you can still wash clothes that means that your other heating element for the washing is fine and that your thermostat for the machine is also working. If you need to buy a dryer component may I suggest 4hotpoint.co.uk, I have just bought an element from them and it cost me £27.99 including tax and P&P. May I also suggest that you get a suitably qualified or competant (not saying that you are not) person to fit the element for you as you do not want anything to go wrong with your washing machine. Hope this helps :o)
